What would I need to do to teach online at Pierce College?

As approved by Pierce Academic Senate 2015, the following guidelines qualify you to teach online at Pierce College:

Prior to teaching online, all new online instructors shall attend and complete six hours of online pedagogy training and six hours of PierceOnLine CMS tools training which can be accomplished through:

  • 1.) Two courses - @one online training (funded by Title V and free to all faculty) This is offered four times a year. If faculty want to get certified at a different time, they can fund themselves and take the course "Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning" directly from @onehttp://www.onefortraining.org AND Introduction to Canvas Training - this is offered six times a year.
  • 2.) a course/conference otherwise approved by the DEITC as comparable to the options listed above.
  • 3.) a degree or certificate from accredited institution in educational technology, online curriculum **
**With the arrival of Canvas, an additional course is needed titled: Introduction to Teaching with Canvas and is offered every month via PierceOnLine and it is a three-week fully online course.
